KAPSARC Granted Key Role in UN Environment Program, to Participate in Global Energy and Climate Dialogues
The King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC) in Saudi Arabia has been granted a key role in the UN Environment Program.
This will enable KAPSARC to participate in global energy, climate and environment dialogues and adopt an observer status.
The new status will allow KAPSARC to deliver evidence-based reporting and policy recommendations, particularly in the crucial phase of climate change conversations.
KAPSARC has already embraced its commitment to the UNEP by participating in the second session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee in Paris, where it played a significant role in discussions on developing an international framework to address plastic pollution.
KAPSARC highlighted the value of a circular plastic economy and expressed support for technologies that can contribute to these goals.
